Yours Truly, New England © Maxis Gamez, All Rights Reserved

I had an amazing opportunity photographing Snow Owls in New England for 5 days without feeding them like you saw on the article above. There is a huge debate online and on Facebook about the feeding of owls right now by several "Pro's" for a buck. My trip proved that it can be done "the Old Fashioned Way"....spending hours in the field!

Temps dropped to -7 at one point but when you are dress for success, nothing can stop you. I was warm the entire time thanks to my Columbia gear and glove kit.

I created over 5K images but I'm sharing a few with you all. More importantly, I wanted to share the word about feeding the owls.

Next time you see a "WOW" image on forums, remember that it was baited. You know the old saying.............. A baited owl, is a dead owl!

Thanks!
